Foldable, custom and wooden are three standout attributes of the furniture trends in 2013. Furniture design now caters to the quickly growing market of urban dwellers who occupy very small living spaces and who move around more frequently than people in the past. As a result, furniture pieces are now designed in a way that their shape can be altered to better fit a particular space. Couches that can be configured or tables that can be made smaller or bigger are just a few of the examples.

Consumers are also seeking furniture products that fall under the category of "do it yourself." From shelving units to beds and storage, individuals want full control over the aesthetic of their interior decor.

The furniture trends in 2013 also witnessed a shift in the materials used. This year saw a significant increase in the use of a very traditional material: wood. Wood offers more minimalist and simplistic elements of which many consumers are seeking.
